Description: Are disruptive student behaviors interfering with your ability to provide instruction? Do you want to spend more time teaching and less time responding to problem behaviors? This workshop will outline core universal strategies that should be in place within every classroom to create and maintain an optimal learning environment - where engagement is high and disruptions are low. Topics covered include basics of behavior, truths and myths of classroom management, effective classroom structures, high-leverage instructional practices, reinforcing desired behaviors, and responding effectively to disruptive behaviors. Participants will learn the rationale behind implementing each strategy, when and where to use each one, and most importantly, how to implement each strategy. Related resources to assist in implementation will be provided to participants.

Objectives: By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. State the rationale for ensuring core classroom management strategies are implemented with fidelity within their classroom
  2. List 5 core instructional practices to implement within their classroom to increase student engagement
  3. Describe evidence-based strategies for responding to appropriate and inappropriate behavior in the classroom

Shifting our Thoughts and Actions to Increase Student Success

Description: Participants will be provided a brief introduction into the foundations of human behavior to better understand why disruptive behaviors may be occurring in the classroom. Common misconceptions surrounding classroom management will be debunked and necessary shifts in thoughts and actions to increase success will be discussed. Finally, participants will learn the importance of setting the stage for success with effective classroom structure to include organization, physical layout, and the use of visuals, schedules, routines, and expectations.

Leveling-Up Your Instructional Practice

Description: Participants will learn five strategies to maximize instruction and engagement within their classroom. Concepts taught include precorrection, verbal scaffolding, instructional choice, active student response methods, and active supervision. Participants will also learn when and how to combine strategies within an instructional block to increase effectiveness. 

Responding to Desirable and Undesirable Student Behavior

Description: Participants will learn how to pay-off or reinforce appropriate classroom behaviors as well as how to respond effectively to inappropriate behaviors. The use of non-tangible reinforcers and methods to increase student motivation will be discussed. Participants will learn to understand the escalation cycle and be provided with effective responses at each level of the escalation cycle.

Professional Development Hours: Certificate of attendance with training hours will be provided to attendees at the conclusion of the workshop.
